Education, Health, and Social Work
Gain valuable teaching experience in schools in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley or near one of MBC’s conveniently located regional centers
MBC’s Adult Degree Program offered everything I wanted and needed to become a teacher. Now that I have my undergraduate degree and am working toward my master’s, I believe I have more credibility with parents, students, administrators, and other teachers. Mary Baldwin has made so many things possible for me.
Master the principles of health care administration in a fully certified program with a stellar job-placement record
I’ve done reviews of five HCA programs, all big schools … We’re smaller, we’re more focused, we have a liberal arts emphasis, and now we have the public health emphasis. None of the others teach any international health courses — but we do. Some teach long-term health care, some don’t — we do. Our students can even sit for the licensing exam to run a nursing home in Virginia.
Whether in Staunton, at an MBC regional center, or spending a semester abroad as a social work intern, work side-by-side with faculty and students who share your caring spirit
I have learned to step up and become a leader. I came to Honduras to make a difference. There is something inside me that motivates me to do this kind of work. Each day I am giving back to the community.
I am much more culturally sensitive, open, and just take everything in. I am always making comparisons between Honduras and the U.S.: government, education, culture. I call upon everything I learned at MBC in what I do.
